Awful
Shaune_A
, Jul 2022
We paid 125$ for 5 tickets. We couldn’t find the hide and then no one answered the phone when we called the contact number to find him. Then we finally got through to someone and they said the guide left without us and that we could not be reimbursed or join another tour. I would never recommend this - it messed up our entire afternoon. Was a waste of money and more importantly precious time

Our tour guide was a great storyteller. She made the history very easy to follow. The knowledge shared helped us understand other historical spots in Florence.

Not worth it and bad info given
Stephen_C

The directions for where to meet are awful. We've been on many such tours and this outfit had no identification and ghe address given was wrong. We were present 20 minutes before the tour started and searched frantically to find a guide to no avail, and even called the office. The person on the phone barely spoke English and gave us wrong information. We finally just waited in the non reserved line and got inside. The inside was far less spectacular than the outside. No guide is really needed

Beautiful Duomo

We loved hearing the history, seeing the art, & witnessing a restorer working. The only part that we were sad about was the sudden closure of the cathedral, which cut our tour short.

The lines to get tickets are very long. It was nice to pick our day and time. The meeting point was very easy to find.

Not an accurate title. Not worth it.

The name of this tour doesn't match its offerings. It does not include access to the Duomo. It only lets you into the cathedral. It's silly expensive for the shot tour. Sure the stories were cool, but nothing mind-blowing and you literally just stand it two parts of the cathedral. I would have never bought this if I didn't think it gave me access to the actual duomo. Waste of money and time.

Our guide who is from Florence was just amazing. Such interesting facts about the Duomo and its history. But just the right amount of information. We weren't overloaded with information. Great tour. Thank you so much.

Quick and concise tour
Alyssa_M

So much info in a short time, it was perfect. The quick entrance into Il Duomo alone was worth the ticket price but our guide was amazing, a wealth of information and passionate about the story behind the complex. Our teenagers even said, “That was a great tour!”

OK, but could be better.

The guide was nice and friendly, but she kept repeating the same thing over and over again. The tour felt rushed. Also - I would not consider 25 people is a “small group”.

Guide didn’t show

The guide did not show up. We called and were told she was running late, then called again 20 minutes later and told the tour had left without us. Viator issued a refund immediately.

Beware the no-show rules!
Mark_D
, Jun 2022
Frankly this was very bad. For some reason the confirmation email arrived minutes before the tour was to start - the instructions for where to meet were poor given how many entrances there are and how huge the crowds of people were. Not necessarily the fault of the tour, and so they weren't prepared to refund. Entrance to the Duomo was free so we went in anyway...

Was confusing to find the guide initially but from then on it was a great tour. Starting out on the museum across from the dome, we skipped the line to go inside. Guide was great explaining all of the details and answered questions with ease. Pleasurable experience

Our guide was knowledgeable and interesting. This is my 3rd aviator tour - all very good. I was with a friend who had been on a tour before, she said this was better.
